    I agree with Obama who called West a "jackass," for his behavior.

    In the middle of a live TV event to raise money for those who suffered the wrath of Katrina,
    Kanye West saw fit to shout "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

    His immature behaviour at the MVA is not comparable to the justified anger that he felt given how neglected people were after New Orleans.

    That's what we'd like to think, but we'd be wrong.

    Right, I think many were angry about that. Many probably wouldn't do what he did, but to each his/her own.

    All I see is this. You've failed to make a logical argument.

    TERRY MORAN: In the heat of the moment it came out. Reflecting now, do you still believe George Bush doesn't care about black people?
    KANYE WEST: I mean, I have a hard time believing George Bush cares about anyone. So ... Sidebar -- black people also.
    TERRY MORAN: Will you say that again?
    KANYE WEST: No. It's already been said.

    My other(read:actual) source was an editoral page, so I decided not to use it, in such I've made a mistake and here's the article which I found this on.
    What if Kanye West is Retarded? | Cracked.com

    You can see why I didn't want to use it, but here's the context of the part in question

    You all remember what happened. A few years ago, Kanye West went on TV in the middle of a disaster, veered off teleprompter and barked “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” At the time, I thought it was either a passionate, gut reaction (albeit, an ill-advised one) or just a calculated rant under the guise of outrage, designed to make controversy and headlines. If that’s the case, to his credit (or colossal shame, depending on whether or not you think seeking headlines in the middle of a disaster can be considered admirable) it worked. In either scenario, we have an artist who isn’t afraid to get political and challenge the highest American authority, which is a sure-fire way to earn your spot in the Insane Musician Hall of Fame.

    But What if Kanye West is Retarded?

    If Kanye is retarded, it obfuscates things a little bit. To get a better grasp on the situation, I did the follow-up research that I never did at the time of the incident. Apparently, Kanye did an interview regarding his comments shortly after his words, and he explained that he honestly believed that people might understand him better based on his comments. He didn’t make any motions towards either apologizing or expanding on his sound bite, he just thought, “Hey, that comment gives people a good introduction into who I am as a person. Me.”


    Hurricane Katrina was wonderful for Kanye’s public perception.

    And what exactly did he think people understood? Not that he was a goon, or a shameless opportunist, no. He felt that the words showed the world that he had, in his words, “little baby Tourette’s, maybe not quite diagnosed” as evidenced by how “the truth just comes out accidentally like what’s off the top of [my] mind.”

    So, here is the list of things we need to understand based on Kanye’s statements…

    A) Kanye West genuinely thinks he suffers from an undiagnosed form of Tourette’s;
    B) Kanye West thinks Tourette’s syndrome is when you accidentally speak the truth in the heat of the moment;
    C) Kanye West believes that people will understand him better now that they’re aware of his undiagnosed, nonexistent condition.

    …and our conclusions are, respectively, “No you don’t,” “No it isn’t” and “You’re an idiot.”

    The final and strangest point we can take away from his interview is that Kanye West seems to think that the degree of severity of Tourette’s is measured on some kind of Baby Scale, where mild, sporadic adult onset Tourette’s is classified as “little baby Tourette’s” and, we can presume, more persistent and traumatic cases can be classified as “enormous super baby Tourettes.”

    As a sidebar, while it may not be Science’s preferred method for measuring the severity of a disease, “little baby Tourette’s,” is a truly hilarious phrase. One of these days I’m going to invent a face-shitting cocktail that renders the drinker immediately incapable of controlling their speech and I am hereby officially calling shotgun on the rights to “Little Baby Tourette’s” as the name of said drink.

    Angered or not, there is no justification for claiming someone doesn't care about black people, without concrete proof.
    Had the majority of those in New Orleans been white, do you really think anyone is stupid enough to believe West would have said, " GW doesn't care about white people?"

    When someone can't spot a person fanning the flames of racism, they're in denial.

    Ohh pleeeeeease. George Bush was not responsible for "neglect" of anybody in New Orleans. The federal government spent TONS of money on Katrina relief. A lot of it cleaning up after people who could have prepared for what happened in the first place. A bunch of people were given free shelter in Houston for two years! And that's just one example of all the work that was done to help hurricane victims.

    Sorry, but there was no "justified anger" towards Bush for his response to Katrina. He could have made a speech and said "Sucks to be you, don't live on the Gulf Coast. They have a lot of them there hurricanes down there." But he didn't, obviously.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled idiot rapper discussion.

    I said it wasn't comparable. Katrina revolves around serious political issues that affected lives in very dramatic ways. The facts of Katrina are irrelevant, what is relevant is that it was a very consequential topic, so speaking one's mind (however ill-ordered or illogical that mind may be) is justified. an overflow of emotions outside the realm of logic is justified given the serious context and time proximity to the disaster.

    That is not comparable to an outburst at a freaking awards show where people put on nice clothes and hold a funny trophy, ultimately staining a kid's first moment in the sun.

    They're two different arenas, they're not comparable.
